Our Heyer Days Party continues today with a look at…


The Reluctant Widow


reluctantwidowIn this book, Elinor Rochdale boards the wrong coach and finds herself at the estate of Eustace Cheviot rather than her employer’s home.  Eustace’s cousin, Mr. Ned Carlyon persuades Elinor to wed the dying Eustace.  Elinor soon finds herself a wealthy widow, but things grow complicated as Elinor finds herself in the middle of an international espionage ring and mystery surrounds the family estate.


Another wonderful Heyer book, The Reluctant Widow is filled with colorful characters, humor, and intrigue.  Elinor is a witty and charming character that I adored.  I truly enjoy the heroines of Ms. Heyer’s novels and Elinor is among my favorites. 


I enjoyed reading as the story unfolded and we discovered something new with each page.  With The Reluctant Widow, Ms. Heyer once again demonstrates her wit and attention to detail with this delightful book.


Unlike yesterday’s book, this one is more of a mystery.  However, it is just as enjoyable and easy to lose oneself in as you enter this fascinating world.

I have all of her books.

  15. Pam P says:

    I read almost all the Heyers way back when, then they all got lost in a move, been so long time for re-reads and I had to buy a few I remembered as my favorites.

    I’m a big historical fan so have lots of favorites, among them, most autobuys, a few – Connie Brockway (and she’s got a new one coming out very soon, yay), Loretta Chase, Lisa Kleypas, Madeline Hunter, Jo Beverley, Mary Balogh, Julia Quinn, Carla Kelly and those older Julie Garwoods, and recently Jo Goodman, Joanna Bourne, and Elizabeth Hoyt.
